Two New Motorcycle Half Helmets That Are Changing the Game

Posted on 06 Apr 2017 in Motorcycle | 0 comments

The half helmet.  This style of lid isn’t usually the main focus for helmet manufacturers.  Their real money makers are traditionally in the full face category.  But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ever any advancements in the half category.  With not much real estate to work with in a half helmet, it’s hard to improve on the design, though.  A helmet designer needs to get really creative to make a substantial upgrade.  This year, a couple brands have taken on the challenge and have really changed the game with their new models.  The Sena Cavalry and the Scorpion Covert are worth a second look for this riding season. Sena Cavalry Half Helmet with Bluetooth Communicator Half helmets and communicators have had a difficult relationship over the […]

Snowmobile Mono Suits: Embrace the Adult Onesie

Posted on 30 Nov 2016 in Powersports, Snowmobile | 0 comments

Back in the day, the one piece snow suit did rule the roost.  So much so that many of the many sled manufacturers had their own branded offerings.  Whether they were race leathers or made from crude, early textiles, the snow suits of the 70’s were […]

If you crave better handling but don’t have the time or patience […]
